SHOCK!?! OAK PARK MALL DISNEY STORE SHUTS DOWN!!! NO MORE OFFICIAL MICKEY MOUSE MERCH OUTLET IN KANSAS CITY!!!
Corporate biz abandons Kansas City retail and local middle-class parents catch a break as overpriced junk is now just a bit further out of reach.
Checkit as we check online to see if we can snag one of these really fun gangster Mickey parody shirts . . .
